Focus on Suicide

The objective of the Focus on Suicide section is to promote scientific research into the causes and prevention of suicide. Identification of risk and protective factors related to suicidal behavior, diagnosis of at-risk persons, evidence-based intervention research, treatment and practice strategies, interdisciplinary approaches, brain imaging and genomic studies are all of interest. In selecting articles on suicide, JCP aligns its goals with those set forth in February 2014 by the National Alliance for Suicide Prevention’s Research Prioritization Task Force in A Prioritized Research Agenda for Suicide Prevention. Authors are invited to submit high-quality research and scholarly reviews on all aspects of suicide that will contribute to the overall decrease in the global burden of suicide.

We encourage authors to submit papers for consideration as a part of our Focus on Suicide section. Please contact Philippe Courtet, MD, PhD, at
